1. I have a heart shaped birthmark on my arm

2. I was a very creepy child (think Wednesday Adams) but no longer am I creepy!

3. I have been with my Fiance for 10 years (!)

4. I have a degree in Computer Games Art that I no longer use but it was loads of fun to do!

5. I was a World of Warcraft addict and still love to play games in my free time (when I get any that is)

6. I’m left handed

7. I taught myself to crochet using youtube videos and bucketloads of perseverence

8. My nanna taught me to knit as a child and I’d love to pick it back up again as a tribute to her

9. My fiance and I have recently bought our first house together and are currently in the process of gutting and DIYing it one room at a time

10. I love to grow vegetables… even though I’m not very good at it

11. I didn’t own a passport and had never left the UK until I was 28… my first ever holiday was to Rome last September!


If you could live in any reality TV series, what would it be?

I don’t tend to watch reality TV so I’ll probably say The Great British Bake off; baking in a tent sounds like a lot of fun and I do love to bake!

What’s your favourite Web site?

Pinterest! If I’m on my phone I’m either on Facebook or Pinterest, and it’s usually Pinterest, just so many pretty things to look at and pretend I’m going to have a go at!

What was your most recent trip of more than 50 miles?

Our last trip was to Paris for our 10 year anniversary! It was a pretty spectacular weekend where we ate too much amazing food and drank lots of lovely wine!!

What’s the best bargain you’ve ever found ?

I once got a pair of trainers for £1! A freaking pound!! Still marvelling about it 4 years later!

When ordering a takeaway what do you order?

Depends on the day but absolute favourite is Curry, as hot as we dare, mushroom pilau, garlic naan bread and onion bhajis! Pure food coma heaven!

What’s the best costume you’ve ever worn?

I once dressed as a pirate wench using just items from my wardrobe! Millions of scarves and an oversized shirt tied up and there you have it, instant pirate wench!

What’s your least favourite word and why?

I don’t think I ever dislike a word, usually just how someone uses it.

If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?

I’d love to go to china, so much culture and tasty food!

Where do you go for advice?

Google, it always knows the answer! If in doubt though my hubby or my mam are good backups!

What’s your favourite knock-knock joke?

I’m going to be cheeky and just change this to joke!

What do bats sing when it rains?

Raindrops are falling on my feet!

I’m just going to go off and giggle for a bit before I answer any more…

If you could have a super power, what would it be?

Probably invisibility… but I’d abuse it, with great power comes great responsibility!
